ABSTRACT: A robot is a mechanical or virtual, artificial agent. It is usually an electromechanical system, which, by its appearance or movements, conveys a sense that it has intent or agency of its own. but for robots, even slight damage can make them stumble and fall. Recovery from error, failure or damage is a major concern in robotics. A majority of effort in programming automated systems is dedicated to error recovery.The need for automated error recovery is even more acute in the field of remote robotics, where human operators cannot manually repair or provide compensation for damage or failure.Self-reconfigurable modular robots are metamorphic systems that can autonomously change their logical or physical configurations (such as shapes, sizes, or formations), as well as their locomotion and manipulation, based on the mission and the environment in hand. They have an ability to adapt to minor injuries and continue its job. It basically looks like a splay-legged, four-footed starfish and knows the shape of its own body by performing a series of playful movements. A simple behavior-based control strategy is used for control and reconfiguration of the Self-healing robots. Because of their modularity, versatility, self-healing ability and low cost reproducibility, such robots provide a flexible approach for achieving complex tasks in unstructured and dynamic environments
